FIRST ON FOX: It now appears that a vicious brawl at a south 
suburban restaurant on Saturday involved hammer-wielding 
"anti-fascists" attacking a group of self-professed "white 
nationalists." 

The attack occurred at 12:45 p.m. Saturday, according to 
Tinley Park police. Ten were injured, with three taken to local 
hospitals. Among innocent bystanders terrified by the bizarre 
explosion of violence were several dozen women there for a 
wedding shower.

Sources tell Fox Chicago News that at least one of the white nationalists was a fugitive 
wanted on as many as seven different warrants. 

After the attack, several injured white supremacists fled immediately, declining medical 
treatment. Tinley Park Police said they detained five of the suspected attackers, who 
apparently call themselves members of the "South Side Chicago Anti-Racist Action." Police 
and Cook County prosecutors said criminal charges could be filed Sunday. 

The white supremacists had apparently posted on one or more of their websites that they 
planned to have lunch at the Ashford House restaurant, 7959 W. 159th St, Tinley Park. Their 
internet postings refer to a "5th Annual White Nationalist Economic Summit." Not clear is 
whether they chose this weekend and this suburban Chicago location as some sort of 
response to the NATO Summit in Chicago. 

The "anti-fascists" boasted of the violent attack on their own website, promising more to 
come. The first of four key unity principles cited on the website states: "Whenever fascists 
are active or organizing in public, we're there. We don't believe in ignoring them or staying 
away from them. Never let the Nazis have the street." 

A skinhead using the name Brandon Spiller posted several messages after the attack. He 
said doctors used eight surgical staples to close a wound inflicted on him. He complained, 
"I had my gun in my car, but couldn't get to it due to Illinois law. If I was able to CCW 
(concealed carry of a weapon) they would have been stopped and I wouldn't be typing this 
from a hospital." 

One witness told Fox Chicago News that, just before the brawl, the attackers gathered in a 
lot near the restaurant. They were dressed entirely in black, wearing hoodies and 
bandannas to conceal their identity. He said the attackers were all white, including a mix of 
young men and women who may have been in their 20s. He said they loudly chanted 
political slogans. Then, armed with baseball bats, nunchuks and hammers, they ran 
screaming through the restaurant's front door. 

The owners and managers of the Ashford House restaurant said they knew nothing about 
either group involved in the brawl. 

General Manager Nick Cardinal told Fox Chicago News he was flabbergasted to learn that 
the diners targeted in the attack were white nationalists. He said he had no idea how or why 
they chose to meet at that location.
